At all times we pride an outstanding level of service by listening to, and acting on the requirements of those we work with.

We focus on working in partnership providing our customers and clients with a seamless service at all times.

Our team have strong relationships with investment professionals worldwide and we continue to source the very strongest talent for our clients.


When filling a role, whether from a candidate or client perspective, our view is that this is your job search and we will be led by you. At every step of the process we take the greatest care to represent you in a discreet and succinct manner.


We undertake search mandates for clients and typically work on retained, exclusive and co-exclusive searches. In certain sectors, clients work on a more contingent basis. Our contingent team is well versed and geared to working on a preferred supplier structure.

Some clients simply ask us for market data services. We supply tailored information on micro and macro sector hiring trends, market information on salary and bonus payments and competency based Human Resources data.


In ever changing markets we keep up to date with the hiring patterns of our clients. We speak to established and new clients on a regular basis about the market and keep our candidate network up to date on relevant opportunities and trends as they arise.

We operate as a search firm contacting our network as new, relevant mandates arise.
